    Exclamation NC - Loose "pit bull" shot by cops.

    As I've long suspected...that doesn't look like a "pt bull" to me.

    Wilmington police fatally shot a dog Tuesday night during a street-to-street search for a driver who reportedly fled when officers tried to pull him over, an official said.



    Lucy Crockett, a spokeswoman for the Wilmington Police Department, said officers shot the unleashed dog after it tried to attack a police K-9 team involved in the search.

    The incident began about 9:43 p.m. Tuesday when an officer ran a tag and the car's owner came back as having a suspended license. After the officer activated his blue lights, the driver pulled into a driveway in the 400 block of Evans Street, jumped out of the car and ran toward Clay Street, Crockett said.

    Police set up a perimeter. A K-9 team tracked the suspect to nearby Maides Avenue, where it encountered the unrestrained dog.

    The dog's breed was not immediately clear. Police reports describe it as a pit bull, however photographs provided to the StarNews suggest something else.

    In any case, the dog, Crockett said in a media advisory, "went nose to nose with the K-9, as the handler tried to pull the K-9 away.

    "Another officer tried to make the pit bull back off," she continued. "But the pit bull attacked the K-9, going first for his face and then trying to bite his throat." So an officer shot the dog to stop the attack.

    The police department is reviewing this latest incident, a routine that unfolds any time police fire their guns.

    A neighbor on Maides Avenue said the dog was "the friendliest dog in the neighborhood.

    And by the placement of the wound, it must have been running straight for the shooter.
